Over the past century, our researchers have made consistent progress in the fight against cancer. From studies of the intricate workings of molecules within cells to the results of large-scale clinical trials of treatments, every result helps to deepen our understanding of cancer, and highlight new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat it.
In an ongoing series of High-Impact Science posts on our Science Update blog, we're highlighting some of the most significant research papers published by Cancer Research UK-funded scientists.
We are continually adding to this series, so please check back for updates.
